LOVE IS IN THE AIR

Featuring a stunning 9.7 inch Retina display in a new lighter, pencil-thin design, iPad Air is precision-engineered to weigh just one pound. Thin, light, and incredibly powerful, you can do so much more, with so much less.
BIG THINGS COME IN SMALL PACKAGES
iPad mini with Retina display ($419) – This Valentine’s Day give your loved one a little something more with iPad mini with Retina display. Small enough to fit in their hand (or handbag) iPad mini with Retina display brings all the pixels from the 9.7-inch iPad to its 7.9-inch screen, delivering razor sharp text and detail in the same amazingly thin and light design. With the powerful and power-efficient Apple-designed A7 chip, ultrafast wireless, iOS 7, and access to more than 500,000 apps designed specifically for iPad, the mini with Retina display is the only small tablet to deliver the full iPad experience. With up to 10 hours of battery life, it’s a small wonder.
